Brand New In Factory Sealed Packaging

DAC2 Stereo D/A Converter

You know how it is. Digital audio data isn't the sole domain of digital transports any longer. Today, digital audio streams from sources as diverse as your PC, music server, satellite receiver, mixing board and portable player. Which is why EMM Labs has created one very simple, very convenient way to get state-of-the-art sound from all of them.

Introducing the DAC2--the next generation two-channel reference D/A converter from EMM Labs, the perfect companion for our TSD1 CD/SACD Transport. Not only is the DAC2 equipped with a multitude of input options, it's the first converter to feature our proprietary new MFAST™ (Meitner Frequency Acquisition System) technology.

MFAST™ vs. conventional PLLs

Most converters utilize PLL (Phase Locked Loop) circuits. MFAST™ has two distinct advantages. It's a high-speed asynchronous system that locks almost instantaneously to any data stream. Moreover, unlike PLLs which merely attenuate jitter, MFAST™ strips jitter out of the audio stream completely. Enabling you to enjoy pristine sonic clarity whether the incoming data stream is pure or anything but. The DAC2 also features:

MDAT™: 2x DSD upsampling

Meitner Digital Audio Translator (MDAT™) upsamples to 5.6 mHz, double the SACD standard sampling rate.

Proprietary discrete dual differential D-to-A conversion circuit

We were not willing to accept the inherent non-linearities of every mass-market chip created to date. Neither should you.
